any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by mond

that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u
debate for the candidates for the 1st district in rhode island. we are recovering from storm sandy that did a huge amount of damage to many coastal homes. but that brings up an issue of federal flood insurance. and i had a question from a viewer should taxpayers provide incentives to healthy americans, not all coast home owners are wealthy but to build and rebuild by subsidizing their insurance? what do you say to that? should taxpayers do that? >> because federal insurance is subsidized by taxpayers, it encourages people to build and rebuild because they've got insurance. >> they should pay their fair share so i'm sure that insurance rates are very high in those areas. >> i never liked federal subsidized insurance on the coast so no. >> so your saying that people's homes who are washed away if they want to rebuild they pay for it themselves? >> i have no problem with. that my parents have a summer house. if that's where they want to put their house, that's their choice. their going to live with the consequences. i have no problem with that. >> insurance provides insurance to homes
winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone could actually show up. but we are ready to project that the winner tonight in new jersey is president obama, george. >> so we still see the north is going to president obama, the south is going to governor romney. so far just about everything as expected right now. see the states filled in that have been called already but we'll keep our eye all night long on these big battlegrounds where the campaigns have invested so much time and energy and money. the big states that are going to tip the balance tonight, the vote continues to come in. i want to go to ohio. you see it on the map right now if we can zone in on the board. we see about 20% of the vote has now come in ohio. president obama has 59% of that so far. governor romney, 40% and jon karl, i want to go to you. so much of that lead is based on the early vote that was made before today. >> yeah, that's exactly right and, remember, i said at this time exactly four years ago, obama had a 33-point lead over
storm aimed at the hard hit northeast. and al is in sandy point, new jersey, again this morning. al, good morning to you. >> they built this berm, this dune a mile long yesterday to protect against the nor'easter yesterday to put in an access point and bringing in dump trucks to bring in more sand to protect against a storm surge. let's show you the northeast, because they are making a way along the new jersey coast and bringing in strong northeasterly winds and wind gusts from 30 to 40 miles per hour, and we are expecting airport delays along the i-95 corridor and expecting storm surge from two to four feet of storm surge along the eastern board. the storm surge is going to be causing problems on the beach erosion, and shore waves of 8 to 12 feet. and we have rain with the system. we are talking about anywhere from two to four inches of rain, but look at what is behind it. along the new york/new jersey shoreline, on into pennsylvania and upstate new york, we are talking about snow. some areas are picking up six to nine inches of snow. the philadelphia area has a winter storm warnin
: hurricane sandy -- does that help or hurt the president? people are complaining that the response has not been quick enough. guest: it helped the president a little bit. the cake is still baking. there are not a lot of undecided voters. i do not think it changed anything. host: rick is on the line from massachusetts on the independent line. good morning. caller: i think all polls are an absolute joke. the questions posed are going to be toward the end of achieving the goal of the pollster. it depends on how the question is asked. the answer can be spun in the way he wants. the university of boulder has actual numbers as opposed to opinion. i do not give my opinion to the pollsters because i do not know how they are going to skew them. host: can you give us your opinion? who you think is going to win? caller: i believe it is going to be mitt romney. all the jobs the president wants to create are taxpayer funded. and the $1.30 trillion deficit. host: who you vote for in 2008? caller: i voted for john mccain. guest: there is a difference between pollsters and the republican polls. when w
sandy, did that suppress turnout? >> we'll see what the final numbers say at the end of the day. we know both the states and municipalities took every step they could to make sure their voters' votes would count. the the state of new jersey even allowed you to e-mail your ballot in. all the states adapted. hopefully it didn't depress turnout put we haven't seen the final numbers. >> suarez: in 20 minutes there will be another round of closing. what will you and the campaign be looking at in particular? >> we're taking a look at the state of virginia and florida, which look like a couple of the closest states on the map. those states could go late into the night. there's no question there are still folks voting in line in south florida who have been there for a while. so i think that will take time to close out. new hampshire, voting continues for a little while more. and then i assume allize will turn to ohio and the midwest. >> suarez: ben lebolt from the obama campaign. thank you. >> ifill: we can tell you you the associated press projected a winner in three states, kentucky, vermont,
